Panel: Services, Complexity, and the Internet: What Direction?
Meeting: NANOG26
Date / Time: 2002-10-28 3:35pm - 5:00pm
Room: Hellman/Williams/O\'Neill
Presenters: Moderators:

Dave Meyer, Sprint and the University of Oregon

David Meyer is currently Chief Technologist and Senior Scientist at Sprint. He is also Director of the Advanced Network Technology Center at the University of Oregon. Prior to working at Sprint, he worked at Cisco, where he was involved in software development, working both on multicast and BGP. He is active in the IETF, where he chairs the MBONED and MSDP (Multicast Source Discovery Protocol) working groups. He is also active in ANSI T1X1, among other industry organizations.

Randy Bush, IIJ

Randy Bush works as Principal Scientist at Internet Initiative Japan. Previously he spent a bit over a year at AT&T doing research and working on network architecture. He got some operational experience from being on the founding team at Verio, a backbone provider, from which he graduated as VP of Networking after five years. Before that, he was the principal engineer of RAINet, an ISP in Oregon and Washington, which was Verio\'s first acquisition. <BR><BR> Randy is co-chair of IETF WG on the DNS, and is currently a member of the IESG, serving as co-chair of the IETF Operations and Management Area, mainly covering the operations area. <BR><BR> As PI for the Network Startup Resource Center, an NSF-supported pro bono effort, he has been involved for some years with the deployment and integration of appropriate networking technology in the developing world. <BR><BR> For references cited in Dave Meyer\'s talk, see: <BR><BR> <A HREF=\"http://www.maoz.com/~dmm/complexity_and_the_internet/\" TARGET=\"_BLANK\">http://www.maoz.com/~dmm/complexity_and_the_internet/</A> <BR><BR> For Dave Meyer\'s slides, please see: <BR><BR> <A HREF=\"http://www.maoz.com/~dmm/NANOG26/complexity_panel/\" TARGET=\"_BLANK\">http://www.maoz.com/~dmm/NANOG26/complexity_panel/</A>

Lixia Zhang, UCLA

Lixia Zhang is a Professor in the UCLA Computer Science Department. She received her Ph.D. degree from MIT in 1989. Lixia was a research staff member at Xerox PARC from 1989 to 1995, when she joined UCLA. Her recent research projects have focused on fault tolerance in large-scale systems and network routing protocols.
Dave Ward, Cisco Systems.

Thomas Telkamp, Global Crossing

Thomas Telkamp is Director of Network Architecture at Global Crossing, responsible for the planning and architecture of Global Crossing\'s MPLS backbone, Internet services, and VPNs. Before joining Global Crossing in January 1999, he was at AT&T-Unisource Communications Services (now Infonet Europe) and SURFnet. He has also worked as a consultant for several companies, including DANTE and Wunderman Cato Johnson.
Abstract: Increasing demands and new service requirements have led to increasing complexity in Internet backbones. This panel will explore emerging concerns about complexity and its effects in production backbones. Topics include the complexity tradeoffs inherent in various backbone engineering and operations activities, such as:

  • Traffic engineering techniques

  • VPN technologies

  • QoS/CoS provisioning

  • High availability (HA)

  • Layering philosophies

  • Layered control planes

  • IP multicast
